CS:GO Pros Flock to VALORANT: Introduction

Posted Thu, May 14, 2020 in eSports 0 comments


Over the past 2 months, a number of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pros have announced their departure to VALORANT. The pace of announcements has rapidly accelerated over the past 3 weeks.

Particularly affected are CS:GO players from North American teams. Struggling to find sponsors or an org to sign them, many NA players feel now is the best time to transition to a new game. Talk of esports orgs offering big contracts and Riot Games’ reputation with League of Legends are factors contributing to player decisions.

We’ll tell the stories of those making the move in a multi-part series. 

All parts of the series will be linked to from this introduction. Bookmark this page to follow along, as we get to know these players better.

Part 1 - Brax »

 

Who will be next to make the switch? Time will tell. As the game nears its release this summer, more are sure to follow.
